Talenti Banana Chocolate Swirl - Target : Cherry Hill, NJ

Talenti Banana Chocolate Swirl - Target : Cherry Hill,  NJ 
Here is the other flavor of Talenti Gelato I picked up at Target.
This gelato brand has been featured on food blogs, youtube, and tumblr. Since the reviews have all been favorable, I grabbed 2 flavors to try.
The plastic containers for this brand are all the same, so check out my last Talenti post for a packaging review.

I liked the Mediterranean Mint, but it tasted a bit generic for the hefty price tag. ($5.00 for a pint is too rich for my blood.)

Unlike the mint, this actually has a complex and unique flavor that I haven’t tasted in other similarly flavored ice creams. The caramel-like swirls you can see in the photos above are actually banana! I’ve had a lot of banana ice cream, and I don’t think I have ever seen actual swirls of fruit in any of them. The fruity-swirls are little tart, similar to unripe fruit, but the sweetness of the chocolate and the ice cream balance it out very nicely.

I am a sucker for banana ice creams, so I may be biased, but this is pretty damn good. I liked this flavor a lot, but the price is still a bit steep for me. I’m a little on the fence about buying this one again. (Maybe if I had a coupon.)
